Well, it's been nearly 2 months since my last post, mostly due to a delay in the shipping of new cards from Decipher. But the wheels are finally turning once more as Decipher releases the Expanded Middle Earth Draft Box. This exciting new product contains a 15 card set of special cards that are related to the books, allowing a wide variety of new deck possibilities including everyone's favorite man of Dale, Brand:
For those unfamiliar with Brand, he is actually from The Hobbit. While not the most powerful of companions, Brand opens up a great new deck-type: Dwarves and Gandalf Men. Along with Gimli or any of the other Dwarves, Brand can give everyone that little boost in strength that makes a difference, and ensure that you are never swarmed again.
